Hello, we are a Dutch couple (40f/54m) who have been living in Italy on and off for a few years and have now finally decided to both live in Italy permanently. We have a 5ha property in the southern part of Piemonte. I am currently active growing premium quality saffron and planning to expand while also experimenting growing mint and other herbs. Much of our work is experimental as neither of us has any past experience with living on such a big property. Last year I became chronically ill and because of my illness we have fallen behind on schedule a lot and could use help with whatever peeks your interest. We have indoor tasks such as cooking (your traditional dish) and cleaning, outdoor tasks such as cultivating vegetables and herbs and heavy duty tasks such as chopping wood and digging.
Being Dutch we get by in many languages,with Italian being our least proficient (ironically).

Learn about a mix of cultures, mainly Dutch,ofcourse Italian and even Czech.
We are very interested in exchanging traditional cooking. I am no chef by any means but have mixed roots and like to honor my background by cooking traditional dishes as well.
Our property is quite remote so is a perfect fit for people that would like some time to unwind. It even comes with its own forest, so you can wander around there and maybe even find some truffles. The weather on our property in particular is very calm as we're sheltered by the hills/mountains so the wind and clouds have to go around them. There are quite a few organical farms in the neighbourhood which you could visit to get an idea of their methods and lifestyle. We ourselves are open-minded and free-spirited and mainly go by trial and error. I studied to become a teacher and can help volunteers with their English or Dutch.
We are looking for fun-loving and environmental-friendly people (f/m/x). Our terrain is somewhat dangerous (steep and cliff-like in areas) therefore it is unsuitable for families.
We are also very much interested in Italian natives to improve our own Italian.

Accomodation will be provided in-house. A simple breakfast,lunch and dinner will be available. (We do not have time to cook separately for people with food allergies, vegetarians or vegans). If people want to stay more independently they can always bring their own tent. Please note that the (small) bathroom is outdoors and shared. It has (limited) running hot water. We have pets so expect to find a dog hair here or there.
Even though we are casual smokers ourselves, we only smoke outdoors, as is expected of our volunteers as well.
Our house (and lifestyle) is very simple and basic.
We basically live in the middle of nowhere. Big cities (such as Alessandria, Savona) are at least an hour away, as is the beach. Public transportation is not readily available (8km to the nearest train station). The nearest (decent) supermarket is 30km away.

There is ample space, but not very much of it is level. We have space for 1 (small) campervan on our driveway which can be hooked up to electricity.
We have two dogs and two cats, so please be adviced not to bring aggressive pets
